New Microsoft MVP Sara Lagerquist's quest to bring Power Platform and 'no code' to the masses

September 16 2019

While it's true that many new MVPs express shock when they get the email from Microsoft notifying them, Sara Lagerquist was really, really shocked when her email arrived on July 1. That's because the Microsoft team had told her they weren't even going to consider her nomination yet because they had their hands full with renewals.

She recalls:

When I got the nomination, I was pretty sure that I wouldn't get the award because I haven't been around for that long. It was way too soon. I thought, 'Thank you for nominating me. That's super sweet. Not going to happen.' And then I got the email saying they weren't even going to consider it. So when I got the acceptance email, I was kind of shocked for a couple of weeks, actually. It took awhile for me to cope with it.

Starting on the customer side

As Power Platform consultant at CRM-Konsulterna in Stockholm, Lagerquist is only the third MVP from Sweden in the Business Applications category. The other two, Gustaf Westerlund and Jonas Rapp, work at the same company.

As part of her job, Lagerquist enables administrators at her clients to do more with the platform by helping them find smart no-code solutions using the platform. She also evangelizes about no-code solutions at conferences and on her blog.
